The Narrator's performance was wonderful, conveying the scheming and back-biting atmosphere of late-republican Rome true to form. You could imagine yourself there. However, it takes a bit of artistic license and adds somewhat to Tacitus' works in order to achieve this - the only reason I have marked it 4 and not 5 stars. If you don't mind a bit of artistic license in your history to enhance the experience, I'd say go for it!
Having read another of Holland's books, Persian Fire, and been impressed, I was not disappointed with this one, having been recommended by Dan Carlin.
